With iOS 8 and the upcoming Apple Watch, our favorite fruit company has gotten serious about health and fitness. The addition of the Health app is fantastic, with plenty of third party applications beginning to support the SDK, however some of us may want something a bit more simple.

Stepper 2 is a Jailbreak tweak looking to have you throw away that old, plastic pedometer. The tweak uses the iPhone 5S, 6 and 6 Plus motion co-processor to track the users steps throughout the day and display activity on the status bar, slide to unlock slider, and/or Lockscreen.

Within the Settings, the user can choose where the steps taken throughout the day will be shown, set a daily goal with a push notification, and even adjust the position of the step counter on the Lockscreen. Stepper 2 is prices at $1 and can be found under the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store.
